The Priory Group unveils new addiction recovery facility

The Priory Group has opened a £2.5 million recovery centre in North London for patients recovering from addiction.

Rhodes Recovery, located in Mill Hill, will be the first Priory facility of its kind, with 16 beds offering fully-supervised, long-term residential support to those recovering from addiction.

The centre will offer extended help to those who have already attended 28-day addiction therapy programmes, and residents can stay for several months working towards a life free of dependency.

Priory Healthcare chief executive Sylvia Tang said: “There is a real need for secondary addiction services for patients who feel that they need more support to help their transition back to normal life, and who worry about the dangers of relapse. We want to help those in their quest to obtain long-term sobriety and a life free of dependency.”
